Looking for private space to work, designer Mona Ross Berman transformed a rarely used greenhouse space at her Gladwyne home into a bright home office, writes Sarah Zlotnick for The Philadelphia Magazine.

To create the home office she envisioned, Berman first installed new floors and reworked the window trim. She then commissioned Boland Woodworking to install white shelves along with two adjoining work surfaces.

The changes had the desired effect and what was once dead square footage was now the perfect place for her to work that was both separated and connected to the heart of the home.

The change also benefited the kitchen area where she used to have her dedicated work area, as she turned it into a walk-in pantry.

“It’s nice to have a desk in the kitchen, but if you have kids and family life, you can’t close yourself off,” said Berman. “That’s one of the reasons we moved it.”

The French-door-enclosed room was enriched with a custom-designed settee upholstered by Richard Herzog and a vintage Eames office chair. Berman has also positioned a painter’s easel and canvas rack across the room from the desk. Read more about the transformation at ThePhiladelphia Magazine by clicking here.
